As Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Project Manager, you will play a key role across the College by leading the implementation of our work across the breadth of EDI and paediatrics, whilst championing our commitment to celebrate diversity, challenging inequality, and building an inclusive environment for all.

The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Project Manager is a crucial role, as you will lead in overseeing and delivering our cross-College EDI activity to ensure we achieve the pledges, recommendations and actions we have made to our members.

Reporting to the Head of Strategic Projects, you will oversee the delivery of the key actions and areas of work within the 'Making EDI everybody's business' strategic plan, using an analytical and methodical approach to problem solving whilst also using discretion when identifying and proposing solutions to complex issues.

Working closely with various internal and external staff engagement groups to establish, maintain and develop strong working relationships and regular communication with key stakeholders e.g. relevant staff networks, you will also prepare and deliver presentations and write board level papers to enable communication progress on EDI to all levels of the College.

You will also support strategic planning for EDI activity across the College, proposing opportunities for process improvements and developing the delivery of new processes.

Suitably qualified at degree level or equivalent, you will have a demonstrable professional interest in, and exposure to, equality, diversity and inclusion initiatives , along with a proven ability to develop, lead and manage high profile projects to time and on budget, using project management methodology.

With excellent interpersonal, communication and organisational skills, you should be capable of motivating, influencing and gaining the support of others and be able to establish and maintain effective collaborative working relationships across the organisation. You should also be able to set out and discuss complex issues clearly for a wide audience and to give presentations as required in a fluent and persuasive manner to people at all levels.

The ability to provide matrix management and supervision for the Strategic Projects Administrator, including setting them tasks in consultation with the Head of Strategic Projects is essential.

Experience of minute taking and preparation of board level papers for meetings is also essential, whilst previous experience of working for a membership body or health organisation along with proven experience of working on equality, diversity and inclusion, would be desirable.

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health sets and maintains standards for the education and training of all doctors working in paediatrics and child health in the UK. We advocate on child health issues at home and internationally. Additionally, through a variety of activities, the College influences the quality of medical practice for children in hospital and in the community.

The RCPCH has more than 22,000 members and fellows and employs around 200 staff, most of whom work in our London office in Holborn. We have smaller offices in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The RCPCH wants to represent all the communities we serve. Appointment will be made solely on merit. However, the College is particularly keen to receive applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, and/or candidates with a disability who are currently under-represented at this level of the organisation.

The College operates a flexible and modern working policy, whereby our colleagues work in the office for a minimum of 40% over a 4-week cycle and the remainder from home.

Closing date: 15 April 202
